The Cleanest Swimming Holes in the Ozarks: It’s been heating up around the Ozarks, and with that comes fun in the sun! While many are coming out of their COVID-19 haze, it’s no wonder so many are itching to get out of their house and even their town! But with flight and travel restrictions being slow to let up, many are looking for some local fun as opposed to international fun!
Lucky for us, there are many things you can do with your family around the Ozarks. For the purpose of this article, however, we are looking at some pristine and clean swimming holes you can take your spouse to, or the whole family! But first, let’s take a look at our definition of “clean.”
What do You Mean by “Cleanest Swimming Holes in the Ozarks?”
Many people can misconstrue the difference between “clean” water and “clear” water. Sure, the Ozarks has many clear streams, lakes, and rivers, but does that make them clean? E Coli caused by runoff can be a problem in many areas and swimming holes in the Ozarks, but luckily there are few cases that pop up around flowing rivers.
Phosphorus is another problem that can be found in Missouri lakes and streams. If that isn’t enough, some rivers and lakes have untreated waste water that finds its way into our water ways.
